Forum: GratefulDead Subject: '77 starts here -- day in history

Set 1:

Terrapin Station

Estimated Prophet
Sugaree
Mama Tried
Deal
Playin' In The Band>
The Wheel>
Playin' In The Band

Set 2:

Dancin' In The Streets
Around And Around

Encore:
U.S. Blues


WHAT A SET LIST!.... 1st evers Terrapin and Estimated.... they weren't quite ready to take out the end of Terrapin yet, maybe it was just enough to remember it all right out of the gate. they really SWING this Minglewood, great tight interaction between PHIL and the DRUMMERS. OH, and do y'all mind if we close the set with a little PLAYIN>WHEEL>PLAYIN sandwhich?... didn't think so....... well, PHIL really wants to go for it and tries to steer the jam into LET IT GROW, but jer wins and things stay mellow -- on an even keel -- a bright wheel ensues and passes quickly back into the reprise.....

help>slip in the first half of the 2nd and then, with apparent energy to spare and in good voice jerry serves up a sweet EYES -- plenty of room for phil on the outro and then, well let's keep the ball rolling and the crowd dancing with a well-jammed DANCIN......

THIS SHOW is a little rough around the edges, sure.... but what a great way to kick off what? one of their 4 or 5 best years (LOL)

This is one of the shows I point to when somebody says 5/8/77 is the best show ever! I've been thinking of trying to find better versions of every song on the Barton Hall setlist and the list starts here with the Minglewood. The Terrapin and the Estimated are amazing for never having been played before. If you've never heard '77 before, if you listen to it in order, you'll hear them continuously top themselves night after night. Definitely one of the towering peaks of their career (but you knew that already, didn't you?)

Well, there are worse places to be stuck... and you have '74 and '76 to look forward to as well.

a sentimental favorite and one of my top ten shows for sure. must have listened to this hundreds of times back in the day. incredible sounding recording, energetic and focused performance, jerry in top form, fancy set list, even the first set ditties are played with gusto, and there are enough epic moments to keep you coming back. first set is especially strong.

best dancin' ever imho. jerry just kills it. and great transition out of a pretty eyes.
